FILM: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (15)
SUPERSTAR magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) are the velvet-suited kings of Las Vegas, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt’s ever-increasing ego.
They play to packed crowds at the Bally hotel and casino, run by Doug Munny (James Gandolfini) but their lucrative relationship is not as strong as it seems.
On stage, Burt and Anton are the best of friends but behind the scenes, they bicker, and the duo eventually falls out when a highprofile media stunt goes wrong.
Facing cutthroat competition from guerrilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), Anton abandons showbusiness for charity work while Burt falls on hard times.
When Munny announces a talent search to find a world-class act to headline his new hotel, the duo take the chance to save the act both onstage and off.
Burt woos back Anton and prepares an ambitious new trick aided by glamorous assistant Jane (Olivia Wilde) in a bid to get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.
